CHOOSE TEAMS FOR DEBATE
All But Alpha Nu Hold Preliminary
Tryouts For Varsity
Preliminary tryouts for the Univer-
sity cup debate were held last night by
Adelphi, Webster, and Jeffersonian so-
cieties, in which three teams were
picked to represent each of these so-
cieties in the final inter-society try-
outs, which will decide which teams
will make the last struggle for the.
"cup." The question debated was the
proposed six year presidential term,
with ineligibility for re-election.
Chas.C. Goldman, '14L, E.E. Storkan,
'14L, and W. J. Laidlaw, '14L, with
Frank A., Reid, '13L, alternate, were,
chosen by .the Jeffersonian and G. H.
Beninghoff, '14L, A. J. Hart, '14L, and
V. W. Main, '14L, with C. E. Franklin,
'16L, alternate, were selected by Web-
ster to compete in the final debate be-
tween the two societies.,.
Adelphi chose a team :composed of
Harry D. Parker, '15, Isador Becker,'
'15, and Nathaniel H. Goldstick, '15,
with Harry G. Gault, '15, alternate, to
debate against a team to be selected
-next Monday night by Al.pha Nu.
The final university debate will take
place on April 19, when two teams,
selected at the contests between the
two literary and law societies, will
clash the- last time. A noticeable fea-
ture of these contests is the fact that

Following an explanation of the
campaign being undertaken by the
Civic Improvement League of Ann Ar-

by the city's forces, and the student
campaign will be confined to the col-
lection of money. J. C. Peterson, '13,
chairman, J. W. Fowler, '14L, J. P.

need of more assistance.
Governor Cox of Ohio was notified
by wireless last night of the proposal
of the student body to send 100 men to
the stricken districts, and, if accepted,
these men will leave immediately. It
is expected that in such an advent the
railroads will provide transportation.
It was brought out in discussion that

This telegram was sent yesterday'
afternoon by President Hutchins after
a consultation' with'Dean-M. 'E. Cooley'
and Prof. H. E. Riggs ,of the engineer-'
ing department. Profs. Hoad and Rich'
were' notified and are' packed ready to

While the university is raising relief'
money and offering all the aid it can
in the shape of physicians and nurses,
the situation at the present time seems
to indicate that men with a knowledge
of flood conditions and able to cope
with the. unhealthful conditions that
are sure to a'rise are needed. As soon
as the president learned that the wat-
er at Dayton and' the other stricken
points was receding and that the work
of rescue had commenced he decided'
on this step.,
Reports from the flood'district bring
forewarnings of poor 'sanitary con-
ditions to come right in the wake of
the lowering waters and the large Pat
of the rescue work will probably be
in keeping the unfortunate thouands
from contracting. disease.. Both Pro-
fessors are sanitary experts, and Prof.
Hoad has seen practical. experience
with floods in -Kansas where he served
as head of the state board of health.
"We found in Kan'sas," he said yes-
terday, "that the quickest way to. re-
store things to normal was to get'
good sanitary conditians. The sewage
systems are sure to be clogged and
the drinking water likely to be con-.
tamiinated More people may die from
poor conditions resulting from the
flood than from drowning during the

outskirts of Constantinople, Turkey,
are in iconstant danger0f'being press-
ed into the 'service of the Turkish gov-
ernment and dare not venture into the
city, according to the latest letter re-
ceived by Dean M.' E. Cooley, from
Prof. John R. Allen, head of the wne-
chanical engineering department, in
charge of the construction of an engi-
neering department, at the Turkish
"The Turkish government is des-
perate, writes Prof. Allen. "They are
taking young men off the streets and
pressing them into the army. Our stu-
dents are not safe in going to town for
fear that they will be sent into -the
army .without a chance even to return
to the college."
.In describing the Balkan situatoti,
Prof. Alten says, "The Bulgarians are.
making no direct attack upon Con-.
stantinople, but are concentrating all
their efforts on Adrianople, and Gal1-.
poli at the Dardenelles. If they can
take Gallipoli and the forts near by
at Bulayir, they will control the Dar-
denelles. It is even possibe, if this
is done, that the forts of the Darde-
aelles might be captured. Should this
happen its would leave Constantinople
entirely at the mercy of the Bulgari-
ans without the Bulgarians passing
the Chatalja lines."
' Prof. Allen also relates the attitude
of' the desperate Turks saying: "The
government is again taking all the
horses off the' streets and we cannot
send a team. of horses or buffaloes to
the city without the danger of confis-
cation. They have taken all the Bos-
phorus steamers except a few smaller
ones, so that we have almost no means
.of service to the city. These steamers
are being used for -the transportation
of 'troops to the Dardenelles and to
bring back the wounded."
According to Prof. Allen the situ-
ation is assuming serious .proportions
-for the inhabitants of Constantinople.
He writes: "The conditions are really
worse than they have .ever been before.
We are bringing most of our supplies
by bazar, "Kaick." The most serious
part of the situation being that the

An expectant audience, that forced
up the S. R. 0. sign for the first time
this year at the Whitney Theatre more
than repaid the amateur actors for
long weeks of preparation with en-
core after encore of approval. Prin-
cipals, choruses and audience united
forces to make thedperformance per-
feet or as near perfect as collegiate
performances can ever be. The results
were satisfactory to an unusual de-
gree, the production being well round-
ed, and acted with a smoothness that
would do justice to any professional
curtains. Noticeable for its lack of lo-
cal color, Contrarie Mary made good
before a local audience. Winkfield Col-
